With Spring planting just around the corner, I have been assessing all of my potentially plantable plots; debating if I can squeeze any more plants in my backyard. Since my garden plot is always planted to the max, I wanted to get creative with container planting this season, and thought this would be a perfect time to convert that old rusty wheelbarrow to an adorable and usable garden container.
Next I drilled drainage holes in the bottom of the wheel barrow using a 6/32″ drillbit.
Then spray paint one coat of rustoleum paint on the inside of the wheelbarrow.
Lastly, place a layer of window screening on the bottom of the wheelbarrow, which keeps the soil from falling out of the drainage holes. Top the screening with 1/2″-1″ of rocks to aid in drainage. Fill with soil and plant.
